Meet Donny Cruse, Top Captain from Port Aransas Waters

Meet Captain Donny Cruse, he started Fishing and doing outdoors ever since he was young with his Grandparents and Parents, which is why he has a very deep passion for Fishing. His first trip to Rockport in the 1960s is what drives him to live, hunt, and fish. In the year 1997, he and his family moved to Texas, and with the cheers of his friends and other Guides, he started guiding in 2003.

He eventually participated in the Redfish tournaments for 6 seasons in the coastal bend. He has fished here for over 40 years, which gives him a lot of knowledge necessary to have the best chance of putting his customers on the fish.

Captain Donny is excited to take you on a trip as you see some of the best fishing actions that could lead to your next trophy catch. You can expect to get your hands on monster Redfish, Trout, Black Drum, and even Sharks!
